Brazil Disclose Details Of 8-Month UFO Attack In Para, Colores (1977-78)
Recently, Brazil have declassified some of their UFO documents relating to a remarkable 1977 investigation called Operation Saucer - the documents to have been released were previously classified top secret for a total of 23 years.
The documents hold 2,000 pages, 500 photographs and 16 hours of video footage which has now been released to researchers. This is just a small fraction of the amount of information that the Brazilian government are in possession of, relating to this incident.
Although these documents have successfully been declassified and released to UFO researchers, the Servicio Nacional da Informacoes (SNI) and the FAB (Brazilian Air Force) Special Services Unit both lobbied extremely hard in an attempt to prevent the declassification of the Operation Saucer documents from ever happening.
The Para UFO "Attack"
According to the Operation Saucer documents, in 1977 the state of Para in Colores, Brazil was home to some kind of UFO "attack", from October 1977 right up until June 1978. During those eight months, hundreds of people witnessed several unidentified objects of various shapes and sizes, low in the skies above them, shooting strange concentrated beams of light down at people.
Witnesses who had been hit by the beams of light complained of symptoms such as giddiness, headaches and fatigue. Many of the witnesses believe that blood was being taken from them and many of them reported seeing the pilots of the UFOs, who appeared to be no more than 3-ft to 4-ft tall.
According to Dr. Carvalho, who attended to 35 patients that had been hit by the beams of light, the victims of the UFO "attack" were left suffering with dizziness, headaches, fatigue, anemia, low blood pressure and some of them also had burns, scars and puncture marks left on their bodies. There were also signs of permanent hair loss - Dr. Carvalho herself had also witnessed the incident.
According to Dr. Jacque Vallee, who researched the incident, such events are not uncommon and warrant serious scientific study.
In 2004, a limited number of documents relating to Operation Saucer were released to ufologists. The documents explain how the Brazilian military had witnessed the UFO "attack", taken photographs of the UFO's directly and how they interviewed witnesses. The documents also show how the FAB (Brazilian Air Force) had been studying UFOs discreetly ever since 1954.
In 1997 Captain Hollanda, who was sent by the Brazilian government to investigate the incident, took part in an interview with Adelmar J. Gevaerd, Editor of Brazilian magazine, Revista UFO.
Captain Hollanda explained how, during the incident, UFOs had been seen coming in and out of the water, how many of the witnesses had seen unusual looking people dressed in silvery overalls, along with other unusual creatures, and how one witness was paralyzed for 15 days by a UFO which shot a beam of light at him after he had tried to shoot at it with his rifle.
Following his interview with Adelmar J. Gevaerd, Captain Hollanda was found dead on the second floor of his home, by his daughter. He had been hanged with his own bathrobe and although the official explanation was "suicide", mysterious circumstances surround his death and ufologists remain unconvinced.
Remarkably, Captain Hollanda's information corroborates information already released by many other whistleblowers perfectly, some of them from the US, such as Lt Colonel Philip J Corso, who wrote the book The Day After Roswell.

Operation Saucer was cancelled in 1978 with "no official explanation".
